Superior Police say no one was injured when shots were fired at a John Ave. residence late Thursday afternoon.

Police blocked off an area near John Ave. and North 24th Street around 5 p.m. after receiving a report of shots being fired.  Officers were initially told that an armed person was inside a nearby home and that several possible gunshots were heard.

Officers say a white male exited the home and claimed he had killed two people inside the home.  However, officers entered the home and found no evidence that anyone had been harmed.  They did find a discharged firearm and an unharmed child.

The man who claimed to have shot two people was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.
